MOTD: Now

I had very little sleep last night since I had to wake up early to meet my boyfriend at the airport. He’s home for his birthday. Yay! So pardon my puffy face and tired look. Thankfully, makeup does wonders to lighten the mood. 🙂

Oh, please don’t laugh at my picture below. I know I look funny. Hehe. Just wanted to show how I blended cream, yellow, green, and violet colors on my eyes. I love blending different eye colors to suit my mood. I actually only have a few eye colors in my makeup collection but it’s okay. When you know how to blend colors properly, you’re sure to get your desired look. 🙂

Here’s a list of the products used:

Oh, the title of this post is in no way related to makeup. I’m just currently listening to Now by Paramore.

MOTD: Keeping it Neutral

Here’s my look for March 6. Tried to keep it neutral today. Even though I used a lot of colors, the overall effect was still a neutral look.

I actually used a darker shade of powder foundation first… so I layered it with a lighter shade. Good thing it turned out okay and didn’t look cakey.

 

I also used two mascaras for this. The main reason only is that I wanted to completely use up the Falsies Mascara from Maybelline before I throw it out. It’s almost dried out already and it’s actually 3 months old anyway.

Plus, to really keep it neutral, I just used lip gloss in a caramel shade (and taste).

Anyway, what I love about this look is how I was able to blend in the colors pearl white, brown, yellow, and teal to create something wearable for work. 🙂 

Here’s a list of the products used:

FoundationAlmay pure blends liquid foundation in Neutral
Powder: Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation (Shade 04) and Ever Bilena Powder Foundation in Light Natural (P145)
